“The government will allow to take a precautionary measure before the waiting period for foreign pilots”


The Union government is set to ease standards for a preventive dose of Covid vaccine, which will allow those traveling abroad to receive an injection before the scheduled nine-month waiting period, as required by the destination country, sources said on Wednesday.

However, an official statement from the Union Ministry of Health has not yet been made.

Sources said the decision to ease the dose of caution for foreign travelers was based on the recommendations of the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI).

The advisory group recommended that those who need to travel abroad take a prophylactic dose of Covid vaccine as required by the country they are traveling to before the mandatory nine-month break ends.

At the moment, all persons over 18 years of age who have passed nine months after the second dose are entitled to prevention.

The Union Ministry of Health has received several statements requesting a preventive dose of Covid vaccine for those who must travel abroad for employment, business commitments, admission to foreign educational institutions, participation in sporting events and bilateral and multilateral meetings as part of the official Indian delegation. .

“The issue was discussed on Wednesday, and NTAGI recommended that those who need to go abroad be vaccinated before the scheduled nine-month waiting period, as required by the country they are traveling to,” the source said.

India has started introducing prophylactic doses of Covid vaccines to healthcare workers and front-line workers, as well as individuals aged 60 and older with comorbidities since January 10 this year.

The clause on comorbidities was repealed in March, allowing all people over the age of 60 to be eligible for the Covid vaccine.

On April 10, India began introducing prophylactic doses of COVID-19 vaccines to everyone over the age of 18 in private vaccination centers.
